Question Family Medicine Program Accepts Step 1 Score only!

I found a family medicine program which says only step 1 score is required. I am gonna take step 1 in 2 weeks.. Last day to apply for the program is in december or so. So can I apply for it thru eras after I get the step score??
And how long does the procedure of eras and applying take?

Also, the program says I shud be ecfmg certified by the match result, does that mean I shud finish step 2 ck n cs by march?
And how long does it take for one to get ecfmg certified after u finish the steps?

I may be just hurrying into it, but iffffffff there is a chance, y not take it..!!
I have just started to take the steps, so I have very less knowledge about residency applications.

They say that only Step 1 score is required. But in reality they prefer those with all scores.

Yes, you can apply later on when you get the result. But remember that most IMG programs do not actually go by the deadline, they fill up much earlier than that.

I don't how they said, "ECFMG certified by match results", there's no such thing, the latest it can be is by Rank Order List, which is in late February.
